      when I use my own watercolor paints I hang them right up, you just have to get a feel for what the right amount of paint is. If you want/need to rinse I lay them on a slanted board in a big sink and you can just gently pour water over them. Also most American made papers nowadays don't hold the paints as well if at all.

      Hello Everyone, Well I somewhat mastered fabric marbling, but I've been doing some paper (as you know Iris !). So I ask you paper marbler's ,do you slide your paper off the edge of the vat to squeegee" off the size? or are you just lifting and gently rinsing, till size is off? I've gotten some smearing when rinsing off the size from the paper. I don't want to rinse to much which smears the paint,but I feel its still slippery. Does it matter if there's alittle size left on? Its trial and error here ...I don't want to spoil to many papers.Any thoughts are appreciated Thanks Gretchen
